Scout reports North Carolina is his current favorite.

 

 

I wonder if Blake's the one recruiting him. He did a pretty good job here.

Corvin Lamb says the school that is recruiting him the hardest is Nebraska. “They are a very good team,” Lamb said. “I like the tradition they have and how they like to run the ball. They like me at running back and said they’d also use me as a slot receiver too. They send a lot of brochures and guides and the facilities and campus look amazing. I really want to visit them."

I really like how Bo is making a concerted effort to gain recruits in FL. Depending on how the chips fall next season we could have the #1 recruit from TX (A. Green) and the #1 recruit from FL (T. Moore).

Favors LSU, North Carolina, and Nebraska.

 

Wants a team that is family-oriented and where they play their talented freshman.

so the fact that martin and burkhead are play isn't hurting right?

Yep. LSU has been sniffing around him for awhile, but has yet to offer AFAIK.

Nevermind. :bang Scout shows an LSU offer though it's not mentioned in the latest article. <_<

“I was supposed to visit North Carolina this week,” Corvin Lamb said. “But I don’t think it’ll happen. I’ll probably take it after the season. UNC and Mississippi State stay in touch the most. They show a lot of interest in me. They both said that I could play receiver and running back and that they’d use me on special teams too. They really want me...”

Is that 4.3 forty legit?

 

 

He looks pretty fast on his film. We could really use a kid like this if we're going to keep those read option plays Coach Watson likes so much. It looks like his HS runs an offense similar to ours. I wonder if we're still keeping in contact with this kid, seeing as Mississippi St. is recruiting him harder than we are. :dunno

I can't even explain how happy I'd be if we got Lamb. He is the type of playmaker we currently don't have on this team and if he comes here I'd bet he sees time next year. He should at least if the offensive staff gains an inch of creativity.

Additionally, we could be in trouble if we don't get a RB. Same guys as this year. Injuries have not been friendly...

His most impressive play that I saw (didn't watch all the vids) was the one where he split a couple of defenders and was stumbling a bit. One of the opposing players looks like he has an angle on him, but then Lamb got his feet under him and ran by the two defenders with angles. Showed some serious speed and burst.

 

Definitely need a game breaker like him and Carter.

I like his speed and athleticism.. but with the number of RB's we currently have on scholly and those we're picking up this year esp if we get Heard, I could see Lamb playing a position like CB rather than RB on our roster. I would see him falling behind Burkhead, Trey, Heard and Green on the roster.

Would he come to Nebraska as a DB? I'm not so sure, especially since he has a nice list of schools who want him at RB. Does he even play DB in high school?

We wouldn't take him if we project him at DB...no need for it.

I must be watching something different on film bc I think this kid is a complete game changer. Of course if got Heard I don't think we would take him. He is a completely different back than Trey so you can't really say that he would be behind Trey and we haven't even landed Green yet and I don't like passing on someone in hope that you get a kid the next year. He could take a redshirt and compete for a ton of playing time as a redshirt frosh when Helu leaves. I know that would be the year that Green would be a frosh and if we land him I fully expect him to get at least 12-15 touches a game. With that said it's never a bad thing to have more than one or two backs that can take it the distance at any time.

One of the things we could use him on would be as a Kickoff returner (didn't see any punt returns). You see in every single one of his returns he sees a hole and he hits it and keeps going, no dancing around just running downhill. That seems like what Paul has done this year to great efficiency, also throwing out what Harvin has done for Minnesota. They keep going forward and get yards for field position instead of trying to keep the play alive to try and break it (most of the time those plays don't go anywhere).

I will eat crow on this one as it appears he will visit in January and we are recruiting him rather hard.

 

Sorry. My sources were off on this one.

I'll say it again, I hate bringing south Florida recruits for visits in January... but hopefully the damn weather will warm up during his visit and we can get him N.

I think Levitt going Bob Knight on a player put us back in contention for a few kids. Not this one in particular though.

“I’m really interested to get to know coach Charlie Strong,” Corvin Lamb said about the new Louisville head coach. “I know he was the defensive coordinator at Florida and that speaks for itself. He’s a great coach.” Lamb, who has set a Jan. 8 official trip with the Cardinals, says he hasn’t spoken with coach Strong yet. The school that is recruiting Lamb the hardest is Mississippi State.

 

and he doesn't expect to decide anytime soon...

Scout reports he is planning to visit Nebraska in January, but North Carolina currently is his leader.

Quick! Erect the dome over Lincoln. Get out the 1,000,000,000,000,000 watt bulb! Start bringing in the sand and salt water!

And now they report that Miss State leads solidly. I think we'll wait until he takes all of his officials before we read too much into this one.

 

committed to Louisville

 

He also told Scout he'd take all his visits before doing anything. :dunno As always, remember these are just teenagers.
